Blue Ridge Mountains

Nelson County, VA is quietly nestled into the Blue Ridge Mountains and would be the perfect place to extend your exploration of the Blue Ridge Parkway and see some spectacular foliage and picturesque mountain destinations.

The Orchard House Bed and Breakfast, located just 25 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway is a gateway to many activities and destinations throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains. Perhaps you would like a quiet picturesque countryside drive to one of the eight local orchards with over 40 varieties of apples or one of the 10 wineries and vineyards which are some of the best that the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer.


Crabtree Falls, the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi, is a gem of the Blue Ridge Mountains and feeds into the Tye River which is named after Allen Tye who did extensive exploration of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Additionally, the location of the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast is central to such sites as Monticello, home of Thomas Jefferson or the Appomattox Courthouse famous for the surrender meeting between Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant which made the reunification of the Nation possible.

Nelson Country and the Blue Ridge Mountains is also the hometown of Earl Hamner, creator of the hit television series, The Walton's. The Walton Mountain museum is full of memorabilia from the famous television series as well as replicas of the television set.

Whatever your interest, the Orchard House Bed and Breakfast will be a wonderful stop along your Blue Ridge Mountains getaway.
